Working my tushy off

Pheew, I worked for four hours on saturday and three on sunday, it may not sound a lot but for someone who works 9-10 hours sitting at the office every day standing in a half bent position picking small twigs and branches really takes the toll on you. The ground is covered in small pine branches after the winter storms, so all of my lot looks like this:

Twigs everywhere!

I know you might think “but why do you need to pick them up” well it’s because pine trees contains a lot of acid so if I ever want anything to grow on my lot apart from more pines and blueberries I’m going to have to do something about it. So starting from one end making my way towards the other end took me around 5 hours bent over picking until my lap was full, carrying it over to the barrel I then burned them in. I burned four piles and collected an additional four for next time, and I’m still not done!

My handy man, ie my Honda ATV

Sassy made a good job of carrying twigs, only in the wrong direction. Here she is resting after a hard days work.

 

 

After my hard days work I took a walk on the beach and found a message in a bottle, the one I told you earlier about. Took a picture of the content me (didn’t realize I had mascara all over my right eye, haha!)
